Former New York Knicks Taking Their Talents To Pizza Chain
While the New York Knicks continue to struggle on the court this season, two past players have teamed up (again) to open a pizza restaurant. John Starks and Anthony Mason will look to translate the chemistry they endured during the mid ’90s — where they starred on a Knicks team that reached the NBA finals in 1994 — into a business.
According to Page Six, Starks and Mason will bring the Custom Fuel Pizza franchise to uptown Manhattan (Frederick Douglas Boulevard and West 123rd Street) early next year.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim are said to be investors in the restaurant. Their new Custom Fuel Pizza venture will have to compete with countless mom and pop eateries — some who serve slices for a buck.
